there is a picture of me when i was
ten, eleven, twelve.
i’m seventeen now and
i won’t let my mother
take any of the pictures
i need to believe that, at one point,
this house was more than just
i was born on the second-to-last day
i weighed seven pounds, two ounces,
and it was ninety-nine degrees out.
four years before that, in 1992,
the officers who beat rodney king
within an inch of his life
five years before that, in 1991,
a cyclone in Bangladesh killed
138,000 people and made 10 million
ten years before that, in 1986,
a fire in a Los Angeles library
damaged more than 400,000
and on that day, april 29, 1996, i was born

Dear RaeI thought of you todayMore Like This
God how much I miss you
Reading those messages..
Filled with happiness,joy and love
Tears streams down my red cheeks
Tears of happiness,love and pain
Pain of missing you so
The pain of not seeing you
The pain of knowing your out there somewhere in the world..
Growing up with out me there with you
Me not getting the chance to watch as you grow
They make me miss you even more than I already do
Your not on my mind as often as you was
You tell me to be strong and keep my head held high
You tell me I'm your little princess and you could get through anything if I tried
How can I?
When your not here..
Your memory is little but still there
Like a dim like in a dark room
They are powerful memories
Memories that will last a life time
No matter if I ever see you again
I promise you...I will
I will find away
I always do
I will try
I will keep you with me
In my mind
In my heart
In my memories
Your my fallen angle
Resting on my shoulder
